Awakening to Hope

Scripture: Isaiah 64:1-9

Speaker: Rev. Dr. John Whitaker

Isaiah hopes God will save Israel. Isaiah wants God to subdue enemies. Isaiah wants God to do mighty miracles like God did in the days of Moses. The preacher reasons that with mighty miracles all will be well. Then the preacher remembers that not all was well during the time of Moses. The preacher remembers that the Israelites transgressed against God despite all the miracles. Hope does not require knowing how God will act. Hope trusts God will act. Hope leaves the how to God.
